Anyone been to Cave B restaurant Tendrils in Quincy, WA?

My husband and I have a rare kid-free weekend first weekend of May. We're looking for a sunny locale within 3-hour drive of Seattle. Many suggested Cave B winery and inn (with "luxury" yurts too.) They have an on-site restaurant, Tendrils. Anyone been? Worth it for dinner, lunch, brunch--any meal at all? Good value? Better places to dine in the area? We are adventurous eaters and like dives equally, if not better than, fine dining. Please advise.

      I have never stayed at Cave B because I live in the area. I have eaten at Tendrils a couple of times and have always been pleased. There is not anything else in area. A 30 minute drive to Wenatchee will find you a variety of eateries, even more if you drive another 30 minutes to Leavenworth. I think most of the folks who stay at Cave B eat all meals at Tendrils.

        I stayed at Cave B and ate at the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast. Food was excellent and service wonderful. And of course, great wine to go with it! I can', remember what we had, because it was several years ago. I do know many of the musicians that play at the Gorge stay and eat there.
        Another very good place a little closer is Bistro San Martin in Arlington. When my husband and I moved from Seattle to Arlington, we never expected to find a place comparable to the great restaurants in the city, but this one really is. Fresh, local ingredients, perfectly cooked by a talented, creative cook. We go there for our anniversary and birthdays every year.

          We wound up eating at Tendrils while staying at Cave B. My over all impression is good food, but overpriced. For example, I got a diver scallop starter for $16--got two scallops. Husband did the set price meal, which was mostly quite good, but not something I'd pay $70 for again. I ordered a good warm beet salad. The squash soup was excellent.

          I also have to second Bistro San Martin. Opposite experience. GREAT value for quality/portion size. Truly great destination place; owners couldn't be nicer.
